How many times can I take a quiz?

You have as many attempts as you need at the quizzes built within the course. Don’t stress if it takes you a couple tries — no one sees your quiz results or number of attempts.

If you do not obtain the required passing grade on a quiz you will be provided with two options.

The first is to immediately retake the quiz without review.  The second is to review the course material and give it another go.  You may need to click on the Menu tab, located on the upper left side of the course, to review the pages in the lesson.

Why does the final exam have different questions if I have to take it again?

The final exam is drawn from a “bank” of questions. The question bank is always three times the size of the test. For every question asked there are actually 3 eligible questions in the bank. For example, if the exam contains 25 questions, there are a total of 75 questions in the bank. Questions are randomly chosen. You may see some repetition of questions, or questions of a similar nature, but each time you take an exam it will be different from the previous attempt.

Can I take the course in more than one sitting?

Part of the appeal of online education is the ability to make it work for you and your schedule.  If you have 5 minutes, so does the course.  If you have 5 hours…well, the course does too!
